Supporting Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging at KU

Supporting Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging at KU

The University of Kansas is a major research university with global reach. The KU Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging on the Lawrence campus and the Office for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at the KU Medical Center are committed to creating and maintaining a diverse and inclusive learning and working environment, one that nurtures growth and development for all.

Diversity touches many aspects of our lives, including: 

  • age
  • education level
  • ethnicity
  • race 
  • sex, sexual orientation
  • gender expression and identity
  • nationality and national origin
  • physical and mental ability
  • political and religious perspectives
  • socioeconomic status
  • veteran status 
  • and other human differences. 

By valuing every Jayhawk, we work to bring diverse communities together to make a greater KU.

Please join the Women Philanthropists for KU in providing funds to elevate KU’s work on all campuses so fairness, care, and belonging can be woven into our learning and workplace practices. Your donation will provide immediate resources to be used to support KU’s efforts to advocate, facilitate and support an inclusive environment for all University of Kansas community members including students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
